Starting a fintech business in Indonesia is a very good idea for foreign investors interested in exploring an expanding industry. The government also regulated several activities related to cryptocurrencies, however, it has also provided for certain rules related to crowdfunding platforms. Also, the number of startups requesting the services of crowdfunding platforms in Indonesia has increased in the last few years.

If you want to open a crowdfunding company in Indonesia, there are a few requirements you should respect. Our company formation agents in Indonesia explain these regulations below. We can also help those who wish to immigrate to Indonesia.

Steps for creating an Indonesian crowdfunding company

The first step for opening a crowdfunding company in Indonesia is to register a company with the Companies Register. In the case of foreign investors, the company must also apply for an authorization with the Investment Coordinating Board.

Once the company is registered and the license for operating has been issued, it can offer the following types of crowdfunding services:
  1.           equity crowdfunding activities which imply for investors to buy shares in the companies registering with the platform;
  2.           donation crowdfunding activities through which investors can donate money to companies;
  3.           reward crowdfunding activities which are based on the rewards granted to investors;
  4.           debt crowdfunding activities which enable investors to lend money to companies.
